Welcome

It's apparent Argentina has long-held people in awe: tango, meat, gauchos, fútbol, Patagonia, the Andes. The classics alone create a good wanderlust drink.

City Life
Similar to jumping aboard a moving train coming in Buenos Aires is. Outside the taxi window, a fuzzy variety of the contemporary metropolis whizzes by, after which the street life looks – the cafes, the purple jacaranda flowers covered within the sidewalks (in spring!), and porteños (people of Buenos Aires) in fashionable clothing, walking purposefully past handsome early-20th-century stone facades. And it’s not merely Buenos Aires that’s a stunner – Córdoba, Salta, Mendoza and Bariloche each have unique destinations and their unique personalities, thus do not miss them.

Food & Drink
Fulfilling that carnal craving for delicious steaks isn’t hard to do within the land that has improved grilling incredibly flavorful sides of meat. Parrillas (steak restaurants) are everywhere and can offer up any slice imaginable. And if you are a lover of rice and pizza, these staples are ubiquitous as well. But there's Middle Eastern to Scandinavian and more – in Buenos Aires you'll be able to experience a huge number of ethnic cooking, from South Asian. Down everything with that popular wine, and you should be struggling to maintain your waistline.

Argentine Culture
Dance is perhaps Argentina’s best contribution towards the outside world, a passionate dance that’s been called ‘making love-in the vertical position.’ And think about fútbol (soccer)? Argentines experiencing a fit should be in your schedule and, if you are a supporter, are passionately devoted to this activity. Add a distinct Argentine take on arts, cinema, music, and literature, and you possess a prosperous, edgy culture – element Latin American and component Western – although you can’t help but fall in love with.

Natural Wonders
From awesome Iguazú Falls inside the south to the thunderous, crackling advance of the Glaciar Perito Moreno inside the north, Argentina is a great wonderland. The nation boasts some of the peaks. It’s home to rich wetlands that competitor Brazil’s popular Pantanal, mountains coated in traditional shades, deserts dotted with cacti, enormous snow areas and arid steppes in Patagonia, cool lichen-clad Valdivian forests, Andean salt flats, a spectacular Lake District, penguins, flamingos, capybaras and more. Each one is stunning sights and ventures simply waiting to be experienced.

I Like Argentina
Argentina is my place – this is where I existed until my children emigrated to the USA where I was delivered and raised. It is changed significantly because I used to be a bit lady, but what I love many about Argentina is its people. They will have nurtured their imagination, conviction and adaptability, through good and very bad moments, all while keeping delight, humor and their cultures. I am always very happy to go back to this unique place and its inhabitants – it has been a real privilege.
